Patterning question - waterfowl choke and shell shoots great out of SBE2 with 60 above / 40 below point of aim. Changing to different shell/choke for turkey messes up the point of impact (shot several inches below point of aim). So do you… 1. Keep testing different shells and chokes until it works well for turkey, 2. OR change the shim/cast to match pattern to point of aim? (This would mean using different shim/casts for different hunts— what a pain in the a**) Appreciate it!!
Turkey with Super Nova and Benelli Turkey Choke
letstub posted a topic in Turkey HuntingI got this turkey 17 minutes into Iowa second season. It was an unusual hunt with approximately 12 toms in the vacinity. We saw no hens. I got this 21 pounder with my 28" Max-4 Benelli Supernova and a Benelli turkey choke.
To say that I do a bit of research before I buy anything is an understatement so there were a few expectations I had about the Supernova when I went to pick it up. First and foremost was that the pump might be extremely stiff until I cycled it a few hundred times. I can vouch that, at least mine, came OTB silky smooth and without much rattle. My next question is this: I live in Northern Denver out by DIA and would like take it somewhere and put a couple of hundred rounds through it. I know Colorado Clays is just down the road, but I don't think that I'm ready to spend the money without getting used to the gun. Are there any good places people around here go to target practice? I have looked and am familiar with the ranges. I'm just looking for a place that I don't have to spend too much to test it out. Thanks in advance for your help. Also, feel free to list our any pointers on the Turkey Hunting here in Northern Colorado. Best ,
SBE II, 28" bbl, Rhino 0.660", H-13 3.5" #7's pattern
drenalinld posted a topic in Turkey HuntingI shot the 2-1/4 oz #7 hevi's yesterday afternoon. The temp was 70 deg and the humidity was 100%. At a lasered 40 yards, the results on three consecutive shots through a fouled barrel were 292, 273, and 270 in a 10" circle. An average of 278 is not bad, but not what I was hoping for. I will test again with a clean barrel. If I can get it above 300, i will test it at 60 yards.

SuperNova question (new owner)I'm a Benelli noob so I need some help. I just bought a 26" SuperNova that i'll use as my all around gun. Is the SuperNova drilled and tapped so I can put a scope on for turkey or deer? Or just the steady grip and tactical....? Any other suggestions if its not...
